Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

? I don't understand. It has buttons. Many of my big heavy winter coats have button fronts. Is there a reason why a zipper is necessary?

Eh, I think you're overthinking it. I've gone through a couple of windy winters and have worn button-front coats. They've all been warm.

At -10C and wind, my head wants a zipper.

I spoke to their Creative Director earlier about it and apparently there's a wind tunnel in the front, which should keep out the wind and water.

Impressive customer service answering emails at 4:30 on a Saturday. thumbs-up.gif

If you get the coat, you should post wind tunnel pics.

It still amazes me how others impression of you can be based solely on your dress. In my case I dropped off a shirt at the dry cleaners today at 9:30 AM. I looked like a physician according to the owner there. I was wearing a spread collar shirt, long coat, trousers and oxford shoes.

I said "No"

"Work in financial services"
"Have to go in the office to help out with clients"

He voiced back at how successful I was at a young age.

I was just going in to help out my boss.

Dolce&Gabbana cuts an incredible suit.  tbh, it's not great for smaller guys, but if you are vaguely athletic/muscular, it makes you look like Brad Pitt, and if you are Brad Pitt, you will look likea better looking Brad Pitt.  My "straight" suits are all from those Italian brands - Costume National, Valentino, Dolce.  If you are going to a wedding, or a stupid reception, or whatever, a midnight blue suit by one of those brands with a simple button down and a tonal knit or grenadine tie is pretty much a no fail.

With your build, try Jil.  I am pretty sure that I have shirt very much like that from Jil.  Dries van Noten shirts also tend to be fairly straight cut with narrow shoulders, but his stuff is much more seasonal.  Dolce&Gabbana is good, but it's more... body conscious.

I have close to zero idea of how it works, but it should keep water out and keep you from sweating.
